Probiotics—the “friendly” bacteria
The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria that help reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast and help promote a healthy digestive system. Probiotics are live microorganisms similar to the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in the human gut. Also known as "friendly" or "good” bacteria, they generally come from two groups, Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium. Within each species are different strains, or varieties, such as L. acidophilus and B. longum that impart benefits to the small or large intestine.*
When people have an infection, generally antibiotics ('anti' = against, 'biotics' = life) are prescribed to destroy the harmful bacteria that are causing the infection. But the antibiotics also destroy friendly bacteria at the same time. So once you are off a series of antibiotics, the gut flora is wiped out and you may be susceptible to picking up another infection since the good bacteria are gone and can't fight against the new pathogens, bad bacteria and yeast that may find their way back into the digestive tract.
Support regularity, digestion and immune health*
Probiotics help restore the body’s “friendly” bacteria and help crowd out “unfriendly” bacteria and yeast. This intestinal balance helps your digestive system to work smoothly and helps your immune system fight off the growth of harmful bacteria. Taking probiotics can replace beneficial bacteria lost by antibiotic use, poor dietary habits, or other health conditions.*
